well it says

"No port value is defined for your DB2 instance id (/etc/services file
on UNIX-based systems)"

I am running on windows and I am not sure what it means there.

Pretty much the same thing there, except that Windows places the services
file somewhere else.

Have a look at the setting of the DBM CFG parameter SVCENAME. There should
either be a numeric port number or a symbolic name. If it is a symbolic
name, you need to have a said entry in the services file to map that name
to a numeric port number.

etc/services equivalent on windows is
-->C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\services

Ghumman,

basically you need to set up your TCPIP communication correctly.

If you are not sure how to do that, use the Control Center GUI: ->
'setup communication' and follow it selecting the default values for
ports etc. Should be ok, your database will then use port 50000, and
you will see a new entry in the etc/services file as well.

SVCENAME has got value db2c_DB2 in DBM configuration
there is already a value for this db2c_DB2 in
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\services file i.e.
db2c_DB2 50000/tcp

also in windows services, all DB2 services are running.

so apparently this does not seem to be a problem.

I assume you are running DB2 UDB ESE. It requires additional entries
in the services file - they are there for the DB2 FCM. The default
values for these are (assuming you are using the default DB2 instance
named 'DB2'):

DB2_DB2 60000/tcp
DB2_DB2_1 60001/tcp
DB2_DB2_2 60002/tcp
DB2_DB2_END 60003/tcp

These are required even if you are running a single partition instance.

The FCM entries should be created for you when you create an instance. When
DB2 for Windows is installed, the DB2 instance is created by default.
